    I am sick and tired of seeing comics books that show the transformers with teeth. The transformers do NOT need teeth. They do NOT eat food like the rest of us earthlings.
    Speaking of IDW: Why there isn't any comics books yet in the shops ??? They promised their books on Jan 1st.

    While I'm inclined to agree that TFs don't need teeth, of all the things that artists (and writers) do to TFs to make them convey expression (or otherwise make them "more human"), giving them teeth is pretty low on my concerns list.

    Is there any information on whether this FCBD issue will be a new story or a reprint?

    Can you not derail a topic in the first post with ranting about a chosen artstyle please? There are times and places for things, and this should have waited about another 2 pages or have got its own topic in TFGD.

    Thanks.

    While I appreciate that they're offering a free Transformers-related comic, I'd much rather them devote every ounce of their production abilities to getting Transformers: Infiltration on the comic book shelves on a REGULAR schedule, so that we don't have to be sitting for such a long time before Issue 0 and Issue 1. I was hoping that IDW would have aimed for the same consistency of release dates (I must admit that yeah, I did get spoiled by that "1-comic-a-month" Dreamwave release) but it doesn't look like we're going to get that.

    I like IDW's art and all, but I honestly think it falls a smidge below what Dreamwave used to offer. On top of that, if the release dates for the IDW comics continues to slide back a month, two months, etc. after the previous comic, I'm starting to see less and less reason to get excited about them.

    They dont need alot of things if you think about it: noses, binocular vison...etc, I just like drawing them that way, much like with guys and nipples. we really dont need them, but they're there

    Also, holy heck, Scarlet didn't look like this in my old comic books.

    I can accept everything ( visors; noses; mouths; ) but not transformers with teeth.

    Hell yeah! I agree!

    I think that teeth on TFs make them look like Gobots.
